play more music
renew old friendships, nurture the new
find new outlets for this play that is my work
These are a few of the New Year’s resolutions that are floating around in my head. I’m sure there will be more to come. I’m sure I’ll be successful at some more than others. But I am grateful for the coming of a new calendar year for the sense of a clean slate that it brings. Time and its passing are relative. We can turn over a new leaf anytime we feel the need to shake things up a bit. Perhaps that is my biggest hope for 2009, for myself and for others. To remember that each new day brings the same promise and opportunity that a New Year does. That each day deserves the same celebratory joy and commitment to a better life that we place upon January 1. In the end, this is the only way to really live our lives.
Have a safe and happy New Year’s eve.
